WHAT SOME OF OUR READERS SAY BOUT US:
“Simply put, TMS delivers the best anthology of weekly global news and commentary that I know–from sources, journalists, historians, political scientists, economists, artists, and just plain smart folks who are credible and trustworthy and care about this Earth, the creatures who dwell upon it–our sacred home.”

“It is with great pleasure that I write in praise and support of TMS. I look forward to it each week and enjoy reading the articles by Prof. Johan Galtung, peace educationalist, activists, and others from around the world. My thanks and admiration go to editor Antonio C. S. Rosa for the great efforts that he puts into the weekly production of Transcend Media Service. The publication keeps me in touch with the many people working in various fields and countries–both educating and inspiring me. It is imperative to keep this relevant service alive. It needs all the help we can give, i.e., writing, financing, solidarity actions. I am also very grateful for the publications of my works on nonkilling, nonviolence, and a world without violence and war. I get encouragement knowing that so many people around the world are working for a world of peace and nonviolence.”

“There are no easy answers as we try to find ways to stop the armed conflicts in Yemen, Syria, and Libya and to develop a more democratic and inclusive society in Myanmar. There is little political leadership on which to count. Therefore, the presentation of a wide range of views in TMS provides ideas and techniques for nongovernmental conflict resolution efforts.”
Rene Wadlow, President and a Representative to the UN, Geneva, Association of World Citizens
“For a brilliant summary of conflicts around the world, together with penetrating analysis and thoughtful insight into how these conflicts might be tackled more effectively, it is impossible to go past Antonio C. S. Rosa’s TRANSCEND Media Service Weekly Digest. It is without peer.”
We thank you deeply for your continued support.
